For this report designing, mass balance and energy balance for crystallisation is required. Which is the last process in the given pfd. The only data given is product must be 20 tonn per annum. The process is production of lithium carbonate from spodumene . Input into the crystallisation tank is lithium hydroxide. Output is lithium carbonate crystals .

1. Mass or material balance
Mass in = Mass out + mass stored
Or, Raw materials = product + waste + stored material
Or, total raw material = Total product + total waste + Total stored product
Î£mR = Î£mp +Î£mw + Î£ms
Energy balance
Energy in = Energy out + Energy stored
Or, total energy entering= Total energy leaving with product + total energy leaving with waste + total energy lost to the su
oundings + total energy stored
Î£ER = Î£Ep +Î£Ew + Î£EL + Î£Es
